IWAKI, Oct. 27 — CNN International’s CNNGo has an interesting piece dated Oct. 27 by James A. Foley: ‘Traveling to the edge: Why tourism in Fukushima makes more sense then ever’.
“Life in much of Fukushima goes on as normal now, more than half a year since the quake,” reads the photo’s caption.
After clicking through to the second page of the article, tucked away in the story between parentheses is this quote, “Full disclosure: I was recently sent on an all-expenses-paid trip back to Japan, courtesy of the Japanese government, to see for myself that it still is a safe place to be.”
